Publication date: 1 September 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, Volume 181Author(s): Junsheng Hao, Tao Qin, Yongbin Zhang, Yifei Li, Yue ZhangAbstractA series of novel gemini pyridinium surfactants with different alkyl chains were synthesized and characterized. The surface properties and aggregation behavior of the gemini surfactants in solution were studied. The gemini pyridinium salts exhibit higher surface activity than quaternary ammonium salts and can form vesicles above critical micellization concentration (CMC). The antimicrobial performance of these surfactants against E. coli was investigated and...

Magnetic zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (Fe3O4@ZIF-8) nanoparticles were synthesized by a facile method and used for single-step purification and immobilization of recombinant laccase from Escherichia coli culture supernatant. An activity recovery of 75.7% was achieved for the immobilized biocatalyst. The storage and thermal stability of laccase was remarkably enhanced afte...

Fantin, V. de LastoursSummaryAcute cholangitis is an infection of the bile and biliary tract which in most cases is the consequence of biliary tract obstruction. The two main causes are choledocholithiasis and neoplasia. Clinical diagnosis relies on Charcot's triad (pain, fever, jaundice) but the insufficient sensitivity of the latter led to the introduction in 2007 of a new score validated by the Tokyo Guidelines, which includes biological and radiological data. In case of clinical suspicion, abdominal ul...

Publication date: Available online 25 June 2019Source: Microbial PathogenesisAuthor(s): María Eloísa Poey, María F. Azpiroz, Magela LaviñaAbstractClass 1 integrons (Int1) contribute to antibiotic multiresistance in Gram-negative bacteria. Being frequently carried by conjugative plasmids, their spread would depend to some extent on their horizontal transfer to other bacteria. This was the main issue that was addressed in this work: the analysis of Int1 lateral transfer in the presence of different antibiotic pressures. Strains from a previously obtained collection of Escherichia coli K12 carrying...

Due to the recent appearance of organisms that are resistant to several drugs (multidrug-resistant) like Enterobacteriaceae that produce extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL, concerns have remarkably increased regarding the suitable treatment of infections. The present study was an investigation into ESBL molecular characteristics among clinical isolates ofKlebsiella pneumoniae andEscherichia coli resulting in UTIs and their pattern of antimicrobial resistance in order to come up with helpful information on the epidemiology of these infections and risk factors accompanied with them. In order to conduct the study, 20K. ...

Authors: Delacruz RGC, Sandoval IT, Chang K, Miller BN, Reyes-Uribe L, Borras E, Lynch PM, Taggart MW, Hawk ET, Vilar E, Jones DA Abstract Germline mutations in the tumor suppressor Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) define Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP), the genetic predisposition to developing adenomatous polyps. Recent sequencing of FAP adenomas have challenged established dogma that APC mutations alone represent the adenoma mutational landscape because recurrent somatic mutations in non-WNT pathway genes were also discovered. In particular, one of these novel genes, CNOT3, presented E20K and E70K mutations ...

This article reports the utilization of Malus domestica for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) with cytotoxic activity against the Michigan Cancer Foundation-7 (MCF-7) cell line as well as their antibacterial and radical scavenging potential. The biosynthesized AgNPs were confirmed using various analytical characterization techniques. The cytotoxic effect of Malus domestica-AgNPs (M.d-AgNPs) was studied by MTT assay and scavenging efficacy was assessed by DPPH, nitric oxide radical and phosphomolybdate assays. Furthermore, green synthesized nanoparticles were evaluated for their antibacterial activity against mu...

ConclusionThe ability of certain antibiotics to induce biofilm formation by a tested C. jejuni strain is of concern, with respect to the effective control of disease caused by this pathogen; however, further work is required to confirm how widespread this feature is.

ConclusionThe results indicate that the rate of resistance to quinolone has gradually increased. Since ST4526 was not isolated in 2000 and 2008, it is likely that ST4526 is rapidly increasing in Japan.
